E-Learn 2013: Promoting Failure – Examining Policies Related to K-12 Online Schools

Similarly, the final 2013 World Conference on E-Learning session that I am blogging about this morning is a third session that I was the presenter.

Promoting Failure: Examining Policies Related to K-12 Online Schools

ID: 40314
Type: Brief Paper   Topic: Policy Issues

Room: 5
Thu, Oct. 24 10:40 AM-11:00 AM

Authors:
Michael Barbour, Sacred Heart University, United States

Abstract:
The use of online learning at the K-12 level has been growing exponentially over the past decade, and much of that growth has been driven by legislative changes designed to allow for more full-time cyber charter schools. While limited, the research to date indicates that students engaged in full-time online learning – such as the online learning provided by cyber charter schools – perform quite poorly compared to their face-to-face counterparts; both in terms of student performance on statewide assessments and in terms of retention. This calls into question the claims of proponents that push for more K-12 online learning options and less oversight of these K-12 online learning programs. This presentation is an attempt to frame the problem of non-research-based K-12 online learning policy and examine potential research-based regulations.

I have uploaded my slides to SlideShare and have embedded them below.
